Spotlight - A Touch of Darkness by Tina Moss and Yelena Casale


Cassie’s working for a tightwad boss at a pretentious NYC diner, dealing with paralyzing pain that doctors can’t diagnose, and trying to hide her hands that glow purple whenever she ...well, whenever.

So, when a mysterious stranger walks out of her dreams and into her life to spout some nonsense about her being a mythical creature, she chalks it up to one more crazy thing to add to her it’s-a-crappy-life list. Yet, when the stranger’s predictions start to come true, she discovers a world that could shake up her humdrum existence.


Nightfall couldn’t come fast enough for Gabe. Hours of grating silence with nothing more than her intermittent nagging had worn down his last bit of patience. And now this? He brushed the back of his hand across his mouth as if to wipe away the remnants of her kiss. What the hell does she want from me?

Shifting off the bench, he paced the parking lot at a feverish rate. The fire she ignited in his blood would not extinguish. “Damn woman,” he muttered, kicking a soda can across the pavement. Abruptly, he paused. Soft dings like raindrops on tin echoed in his mind. He struggled to interpret the distant ringing.

“I’m coming,” he said to the summons. “Soon.”

The noise grew louder, a baser clanging only he could hear. It led him toward Cassie’s direction. A profound purple glow began to radiate around her body as she slept. He focused, gritting his teeth and fighting back the growing chimes.

“No,” he cried low, not wanting to attract attention. “She’s not strong enough yet to bring you through. It’s why we’re here. We’ll use a point of power.”

The ringing reached its crescendo. He battled the tide. His hands clasped in tight fists. The electric blue energy buzzed deep inside him, threatening to explode. “We do this my way, or not at all.”


Tina Moss is an author of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, and New Adult novels. She lives in NYC with a supportive husband and alpha corgi, though both males hog the bed and refuse to share the covers. When not writing, she enjoys reading, watching cheesy horror flicks, traveling, and karate. As a 5'1" Shotokan black belt, she firmly believes that fierce things come in small packages.

Yelena Casale is an Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance author. When she is not writing, she loves to read, watch TV with her husband (and without), take long walks and cuddle with her cat Bones. She is a second degree black belt/Shotokan karate instructor, and archaeology, history & art enthusiast.
